There should be crisis training, but not weapons training. If my kids were going to a school with armed people, except police, I would pull them out. Wait for the first time one of these armed non-officers shoots a kid because he mistook him pulling out his hall pass for a gun. Mark my words.

Oh, and police never shoot an unarmed kid? In Wisconsin several years ago we had an deputy sheriff murder 6 people and wounding one prior to committing suicide.,_Wisconsin_shooting

then you base your actions on UNFOUNDED suppositions that have not happened in real life.

A popular misconception is that teachers or other school employees are a "worse threat" to the students (that is REALLY irrational) and ineffective against an armed intruder. That is untrue. Any armed school person would have to have a concealed carry permit,and permit holders have proven themselves to be safe and law-abiding,in EVERY US state that issues the permits.There's no reason or evidence to believe that permit holders would act any different on school grounds than they do in other public places. There's no evidence that a permittee would shoot an innocent,that just has not happened (by a permit holder) in real life,after decades of CC.

would you let your kids attend a school where they've implemented the Eddie Eagle gun safety training programs for children?

Your words are hysterical hyperbole, nothing more. I wouldn't let my dog mark them.

On ABC's This Week yesterday, Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp described President Obama's gun control proposals as "extreme."

“I think you need to put everything on the table, but what I hear from the administration -- and if the Washington Post is to be believed -- that's way -- way in extreme of what I think is necessary or even should be talked about. And it's not going to pass,” said Heitkamp.
